    So, I'm currently obsessing over the Gen 2 PC game My Little Pony Friendship Gardens, and all the old Gen 2 ponies, since that was my favourite Gen before Gen 4. And I'm now wondering, have any of you guys ever actually enjoyed any of the older Gens? And if you did, which was your favourite and why?

    Did you ever play the game mentioned above? Wasn't it AMAZING?! XD

    I apparently watched G1 when I was really young. Huh. Should probably ask my dad about that sometime.

    I can't say I'm all that familiar woth the older gens, but I did buy a G3 DVD from a charity shop for lulz. I turned it off about 20 minutes in because it was so boring more than anything else. It just wasn't engaging at all, and none of the 3 or so songs that I sat through were entertaining or memorable.

    I wouldn't mind checking out some G1 at some point.

    I think the only MLP I saw before FiM was the intro to G1 that was on the Transformers The Movie video I had as a kid. It was on at the beginning with some other Sunbow show intros like Jem and GI Joe (or Action Force as it was known over here). Never seen any of the actual show though.

    After getting into FiM I had a look at some of the G3 stuff and, well, I don't like it. I'm curious to watch some G1 though to see how it all started.

    To be honest, G3 isn't as good as G1 or G2... I really wish that G2 wasn't so overlooked all the time, it seems to be like the only one that no one really knew about and it's my favourite of the older gens!

    I haven't played a My Little Pony game before Gen 4, but my sister did have a couple of videos of G1. She had the entire Bright Lights story arc (with Knight Shade the performer, and his superiors Zeb and Arabus as the antagonists), and I remember one other episode where two ice-cream companies ended up having a food fight over their rivalry.

    It's probably what contributed to me becoming a Brony.

    BLEGH! Curse those technicalities brought upon me by my youthful television watching.

    I love you so much right now! X3

    Mazzy says do you remember the Smooze and the Willies/Woolies (she can't remember which they were called)?

    And I seem to remember an old video where they had to make their way through an ENORMOUS bramble field to get to a castle, am I the only one?

    Oh oh! Do you remember Flutter Ponies?! <3

    I saw someone stream that movie a couple of weeks ago. We also found a copy of it at the games shop at the Aylesbury meet.

    And yes, I remember the Flutter Ponies, especially the song.


    I still don't understand what made them any different to pegasi.

    They were slightly taller and had different kind of wings... And I think they had some sort of job...

    Well, don't throw it away, I'm sure there are plenty who'd be more than happy to take it off your hands... XD

    I happen to have a G1 (Pretty sure) Blind bag toy on my desk I occasionally brush the hair of when bored.

    I also have some G3.5 toys sat in my cupboard that my aunt bought me for christmas as a gag gift.

    Me too, a pegasus called Medley, because it's all Asda had at the time. Hopefully they'll get more G4 in before Collectormania, since the Asda in question is literally right next to the event.
    Haha, tt's no skin off my nose to send it to a better home. I'm sure I've even got some appropriate packaging around from when my and the wife offloaded a bunch of stuff on E-Bay.

    I remember my sister used to watch G2 (the creepiest of the generations) and I do remember catching myself standing in her doorway watching it, I dont remember enjoying it but I do remember finding it strangly fascinating, it was just so weird and the ponies looked so freaky!

    I do remember laughing at it sometimes because the charactors where so stupid and air headed... wow even as a child I was a critic o_O

    Certainly wasnt the worst Gen though, no Gen 3.5 takes that awful trophy.
